The Importance of Regular Wellness and Preventative Veterinary Care with Dr. Mark Hanks

In this episode of The Woof Meow Show from March 6th, 2021, Don talks with veterinarian Dr. Mark Hanks from Kindred Spirits Veterinary Clinic in Orrington, Maine. Our topic is the importance and benefit of pets having a veterinarian that knows them and provides them with a regular wellness exam. Dr. Hanks describes what such a typical exam entails for both a cat and a dog. Then we discuss vaccinations, those that are essential and those that are optional, and how your veterinarian can help you make that decision. We briefly touch on the prevalence of tick-borne diseases in Maine and the benefit of having your dog tested for these diseases at least once a year. Dr. Hanks also discusses titer testing and how it is used to assess if booster vaccinations are necessary. He explains his own experience with being vaccinated for Rabies in the '80s when he was in veterinary school and how he has since depended on titer testing to assure him he is still protected against Rabies. We conclude by discussing the frequency of wellness exams and how that will vary with a pet's age and overall health.
